    Elaine, thanks for checking! Our website is struggling right now and we're working on a new one, but most of the smaller plans aren't on it anyway.

    Hi Trish I just tried to get this formula made up to test out with Benjamin Moore but they wanted me to spend 48.00 on a gallon size so nixed that one. I did try the other two similar colors Sandy Hook Grey and Herbal Escape at Home Depot with their sample size and ran me less than 7.00 for both. I just think the color I see on both of my 27" monitors looks more like a puddy color than the green or tanish green I have seen on these pictures. I also looked at the color fans at the BM store for SHG and HE and neither of them matches up to these picture colors. Also the house color looks different depending on the light and angle of the shots. Go to a BM dealer and look at SHG and HE first before you have any paint made up and check it against these pictures before you spend any more money on this. Also change the formula F1 to S1 since I thought I heard F when it fact it was an S on my cell phone to the guy.

    I don't know for sure, but it could be an unstained old door that has just weathered to that color. I say that because the reclaimed pine doors at my old house had that look. They had been stripped and left bare.
  • Curt D'Onofrio
    edavis3, in making pine bookcases i got this color of the door using jacobean stain. Although jacobean can be a rather dark stain, i got this lighter look by not letting the stain soak to much, i.e. apply stain, let soak for 20 seconds then wipe off excess. One can always apply a second/third coat to darken it up to one's taste.

    I'm not sure (we provided the architectural plans and didn't get to specify light fixtures), but I believe that is a Bevolo fixture. http://www.bevolo.com/
  • ncdiy
    It looks like it might be from Lantern & Scroll as well (find them on here under Professionals). I use them all the time with our clients and this might be the Old Village Collection. (It is one of my favorites.) They have great service and prices. Good Luck!

    I don't know where the builder found that door. Our company provided the plans and wasn't very involved in construction. I do know a few sources in the southeast for similar doors.

    Architectural Accents in Atlanta has a huge selection of salvaged doors - including quality screen doors of varying sizes: http://www.architecturalaccents.com/
    Randall Brothers is also based in the Atlanta area and they have a variety of screen doors: http://www.randallbrothers.com/PDF/Wood%20Stock%20Screen%20Doors.PDF
    I haven't seen any of this company's doors in person, but they look well-made from the website: http://www.vintagedoors.com/

    I think the main things to look for in a quality screen door are the thickness of the wood and the way the pieces are joined. The thin and flimsy screen doors from the home improvement stores just aren't going to give you years of life that a solid, well-made door will. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Good luck!

    I am in love with the rustic look of this wooden, screen door. My husband and I are remodeling our home before selling it, so we are looking for the best new products to get. We'll definitely have to get a new screen door like this since it has the vintage look we love. http://goodneighborscreens.com/

    I'm not sure what the source was for that gable vent. Most building supply places have sources and I know some suppliers have 'local' craftsmen who make custom-sized vents for their customers. Typically, these are smaller suppliers with a bit of history in the community. It might be worth asking around your area.

    The trellis is actually applied so there is space to allow vines to grow behind the horizontal members. I have attached a photo from construction where you can see the shadow if you look closely. I imagine that allowing vines to climb the trellis would create a bit of a maintenance problem, though.

    I can't say for sure, but it looks like those dark full medium sized bushes are Dwarf Burford Holly. I think the tallest bush next to the lattice is Tea Olive and it looks like the little one in the foreground on the left is an azalea.

Erin Carlyle added this to Why So Many New U.S. Homes Are SupersizedSep 12, 2016

A Smaller Share of New Homes Sold Are SmallOn the flip side, a smaller share of the new homes selling are 1,400 square feet or less. In 2005, 9 percent of new homes sold were 1,400 square feet or smaller. In 2015, 4 percent of new homes sold were that size.To look at it another way, in 2015, nearly three times as many extra-large new homes (11 percent) sold compared with small ones (4 percent).Note: More homes sold in 2005 overall, so the number of large homes sold that year was greater (about 90,000) than in 2015 (about 55,000).

Christine Tusher added this to How to Avoid Paying Too Much for a HouseJun 13, 2014

The word “comp” is short for “comparable sale.” Basically, you’re looking to see what similar homes in your area have recently sold for, and you’ll use those numbers to figure out approximately what you should expect to spend. But how should you compare homes? And where do you find accurate selling prices? “If you’re buying a home, it’s nice to know what else has sold in the neighborhood and for how much, so that a buyer feels reassured they’re not overpaying,” says Cassie Daughtrey, an agent with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty in Seattle.But determining which homes actually represent comparable sales is a subject of hot debate, even among seasoned real estate pros. Brendon DeSimone, author of Next Generation Real Estate: New Rules for Smarter Home Buying & Faster Selling, says it all boils down to three general factors: number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage and location. Ideally, you want to compare homes where the square footage varies by only about 10 percent, and that are in the same neighborhood or school district.And then there’s the issue of the timing of each sale, as prices tend to vary not only from year to year, but from season to season.“You’re looking at homes that have sold within the last six months — even the last three months would be ideal,” says DeSimone. “Even more ideally, you’ll look at pending sales, because those have been negotiated most recently.”Comparable sales are also a key tool for determining whether you can realistically afford a house of a certain size in a certain neighborhood.

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to 8 Benefits of Cottage LivingMay 7, 2014

First, cottages simply cost less. And we are talking about more than their purchase price. A smaller home will cost less to heat, cool, furnish and decorate.Note: Although we are talking about the adorable structures commonly referred to as cottages, these benefits apply to any small home — in my definition, a single-family residence around 1,200 square feet.

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Cottages: The Comfort Food of ArchitectureApr 30, 2014

You’re right — it’s the rocking chairs, which suggest a more leisurely pace, a less frenetic lifestyle, a neighborly attitude. The essence of a cottage — like comfort food — is that it nourishes and feeds the soul.
